    Cant go wrong

    By Mike Nichols-Nmz_D

    from Jemison Al.

    I got this unit because of a hum I was getting from my P.A. and my recorder. This unit did not get rid of all the hum but it sure cut it down. All in all it does what it says.

    What's your equipment worth to replace?

    Some venues we play in are in newly wired facilites, following to the 'T' the NEC wiring standards. Some are in the "two wire" era when Bob the Electrician did the work as a favor to someone. Question is, can you replace all your equipment for the $130 this unit cost? You're playing and this nice little 150 volt spike comes down the neutral leg of the building power (eg. Bob was doing some add-on wiring or someone plugs in a shorted motor). No protection = your hosed. I love the LED lights this unit has as well. They use 2 colors that makes everything very visiable at night. I have also called Furman customer support for questions and have gotten straight answers on the capabilites of thier units. This unit is the minimum for any decent protection at all. The previous Merit units do not have the same minimum protection level. It's just basic equipment for any rack worthy of using over time.
